Trick ‘r Treating can be the best time for both kids and adults to enjoy. From candy to the fun Halloween costumes, to parties and fun activities, Halloween is hands-down one of the most fun-filled times of the year for people of all ages. However, it can bring a lot of risks for kids if parents are not careful. When it comes to children’s safety, every parent should be extra cautious, especially on occasions like this. If you want your kids to be safe and secure, then be sure to heed the tips mentioned below.
Supervise Your Kids
You need to make sure that you are staying with your kids at all times. If for some reason you can’t be there, certify that they are with another adult you trust. You also need to discuss a few things with your kids ahead of time. For example, you should teach them to say thank you when they receive candy, be safe while walking on the street, and to never enter someone’s home. Moreover, if your older child is going with a group of friends, then you need to make sure to have the contact number of most of his or her friends. Even better, you can monitor your kid’s activities through Snapchat, WhatsApp, and a remote location using monitoring apps such as mSpy.
Consider Candy Choices
While Halloween is all about candy and chocolate, you need to keep in mind that not all sweets are appropriate for people of all ages. Some candy such as hard candy and gum can be hazardous for younger children and toddlers. While other candy might contain peanuts and other allergens. So you need to be sure to check labels and look carefully at what your kids get in their Trick ‘r Treat basket. Similarly, when you are giving treats to kids, consider buying candy with other Halloween treats including: stickers, crayons, toys, coloring books, and sealed packages of raisins and dried fruits.
Examine All the Candy
When you are inspecting what your kids have brought home, know how many treats they got and store all the candy away from them. You don’t want to be too strict a parent and should be somewhat lenient about candy eating on Halloween. With that being said, let your kids have one or two treats a day. However, you need to make sure that you are examining all candy before giving to your children to eat. Plus, if your kids are getting treats from someone you trust, then they can have them, but others should be thrown out. So, it is concluded that you should allow only candy that you know will not be harmful to your kids.
Organize Fun Games and Activities
For kids, Halloween is all about candy and fun, so you need to make the Halloween fun for them as well. For this, you can arrange some fun games for them and other kids to play. Games like Halloween feel box, Halloween jinx, pumpkin patch hunting game, monster freeze dance, and wrap the mummy are few of the great picks. Similarly, organizing fun activities such as making ghost bombs, candy corn math, creating Halloween shadow puppet, and making monster slime will make their Halloween super fun and memorable.
